BEANS & LEGUME SALAD
This is a crowd pleaser . I always get asked for this recipe and its super simple to make. even kids can make it . Not to mention that it's vegan and full of protein. It's great for parties because you actually need to make it at least one day before the party , that way you get to spend more time with guests instead of in the kitchen . if you have a gluten allergy or intolerance eat it with corn chips instead of pita or crackers . I hope you enjoy with loved ones ;)
